February has been full of convention planning! I’ve been gathering ideas, and ordering in supplies like crazy. Sooooo many ideas, and I feel like I have so little time!
My first convention is at the end of May. Its the MCM London Comic Con – and I CAN’T WAIT!!!! I am a little bit bummed that I’ll be sat at my table for the whole weekend, rather than running around looking at things, but I’m soooo exciting to be selling my own artwork at the convention.
I’ve got lots of unique pieces of jewellery that I’m making, as well as prints of my artwork, tshirts, and stickers! I finally bought the printer I’ve wanted for ages! The Canon Pixma Pro 100s. And as a last minute idea I decided to buy the Silhouette Portrait cutting machine, so I can cut my own stickers. YAY! I’ve planned out a few prints and stuff, but I haven’t started printing yet.
Oh, and BUTTONS! I’ve been making buttons like crazy. I’ve got 1000 to make, so I had to hustle on this! I can’t wait to package them up all pretty for the convention.
Not much else has been taking up my head-space.
I’ve been a bit slow on the YouTube video front. Not for lack of ideas, just lack of time! I’ve been spending so much time getting con stuff prepped that I haven’t had much time to draw. I did put a horrendous sketch up on my channel, but that was just so I could space out the Scrawlr Box videos. Ah well, I’ve got the convention prep almost done, and all the supplies have come in so now I just need to get making stuff. This should be fun, and I’m thinking I’ll make a video or two showing my preparation and stuff. I think that would be fun.
This year is great so far, and I’m really happy with the direction things are going!
On to March…
